Abstract

Electromagnetic radiation from dielectric and conducting bodies of revolution in the presence of arbitrary surfaces T. Durham" & C. ChristodouW ^ Harris Corporation, Government Aerospace Systems Division, Melbourne, FL. 32902, USA ** Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Central Florida, FI. ABSTRACT A formulation is developed to treat radiation from structures consisting of dielectric and conducting bodies of revolution (BOR) in the presence of multiple arbitrarily shaped three-dimensional objects. A surface integral equation (SIE) approach is used. The integral equations are set up using both E and H-field boundary conditions on the dielectric and conducting surfaces. They are solved using the well known method of moments after an appropriate set of boundary conditions has been defined. The resulting system matrix has a partial block-diagonal nature which provides a more economical solution for structures that have some rotational symme
